This game is not meant to be a fun or lighthearted experience. If you are currently suffering from the illness and are easily triggered, please be aware that this game uses stark depictions of people in very dark places.

    The goal of this game is twofold

    firstly, we want to illustrate as clearly as possible what depression is like

    Secondly, our hope is that in presenting as real a simulation of depression as possible, other sufferers will come to know that they aren't alone

Just playing the game is rather disheartening. I'm not depressed at the moment, but I've been there in the past. It certainly feels like a valuable tool for helping people who have depressed friends or family understand what it's like.
